More about Buen Ayre, London

Buen Ayre is a single-fronted restaurant on Broadway Market in Bethnal Green. The restaurant is tiny – the dining room is lined on one side of the room with tables bunched together. There’s a reason for the squeeze though, and the reason is in the kitchen. The head chef John Rattagan moved to London from Argentina in 1990 and cut his teeth as grill chef at the Duke of Edinburgh in Brixton. Having proved his skill in Brixton, he opened Buen Ayre at the end of 2004 and has been delighting his diners since then.

The team at Broadway Market are fanatical about beef, be it carpaccio, filet or one of their many sharing plates, there is red meat galore at Buen Ayre. The tiny restaurant operates a strict two sitting policy in the evening and takes no-shows seriously. If you choose to head over to Buen Ayre for one of their excellent steaks or vegetarian dishes (yes, they cater to veggies!) a reservation is an absolute must, and if you will be delayed for any reason, please contact the restaurant in the first instant – this really is a tiny place!

Friendly staff and great food and wine. I ate with 3 Argentines who said it was the best Argentinian food they've had outside of Argentina

Really enjoyed the food . The Sweetbreads were perfectly cooked and the rib eyes were juicy and had a beautiful chargrilled taste. I took a visiting American friend who likes his steak and he was impressed.

This was my third time at Buen Ayre and I just can't recommend it enough! The spicy meat empanadas and ribeye are my favourites and the La Linda red wine has become half the reason I keep going back. The service is great and the atmosphere is lovely too, perfect for a date.

Absolutely delicious! The meat was really good quality, cooked to a perfect medium rare. I had expected this based on what friends had told me about this place. The surprise was not only how thoroughly they managed to surpass my already high expectations but now delightful everything that WASN'T the meat was: the wine, cheese, and service were also top-notch. Don't think about it twice, just go!

The service was really good - attentive abs warming. The steak is amazing, as good as Gouchos. I went for the fillet - chargrilled on the outside and soft and tender on the inside. Bill came to just under £50 pp, including a small starter desert and wine.
